Watch this Rolls Royce powerslide like a rally car
Never has a Rolls Royce been driven like this before...
Rolls Royces are driven in a very particular way. They’re designed to glide gracefully from one continent to another, filtering out every last disturbance that the world can throw its way. It’s position at the height of refinement inspires the driver to pilot it in a zen-like fashion, with the grips for the wheel situated for underhand interaction. Apparently however, the driver of the Rolls Royce in the below video has his own idea of how to drive it.
Above, you will see a Rolls Royce being driven in a way no other has before. It takes everything intrinsic to the brand, and juxtaposes it with a thuggish means of amusement. For rather than crossing countries, the man behind the wheel thought it would be a good idea to use the Rolls Royce Wraith to powerslide around a large country garden.
With 626bhp from a 6.6L Twin-Turbo V12, the Wraith is the most powerful car Rolls Royce has ever made. The company made the car to appeal to a younger audience - yet somehow, I don’t think light rallying was quite what they had in mind for when their car was in the hands of that aforementioned “younger audience”.
If you were to see this spectacle performed in an Impreza of an Evo, it wouldn’t be worth a click - much in the same way that a gymnast doing a backflip is good, but nothing special. If however you saw a sumo-wrestler somersaulting, it would be significantly more impressive. The Wraith, in the nicest possible way, is the morbidly obese wrestler.
